Food And Drink

We have highlighted some of restaurants in the area. Remember it’s our taste and you may not agree. We have a file on site with sample menus of these any many other restaurants and takeaways including details of those that welcome dogs.


Spice 4 U

Is very good, clean modern and bright with good food although it gets very busy at weekends. They also do takeaways. 41 Hungate, Pickering.


Italian Pizza


Its on the right hand side of Pickering high street. Kevin and I tried it out recently and it was very good food. Pasta, Pizza and what you would expect from an Italian.


Fig Salad

White Swan

Is located on Pickering high street. We think it is excellent, quite “foody”. A main course costs about £12 – £18.
Pet Friendly in Bar Area

Fox and Hounds Sinnington

About three miles out of Pickering on the way to Helmsley. It has a restaurant as well as the pub food and has a very good and well deserved reputation. You really need to book though especially on weekends; it is slightly pricier than some of the pub meals but is very good.

Pub Food

Pub Food

Fox & Rabbit, Lockton (Pet friendly)

Black Swan, Pickering (Pet friendly)

Good food and a great selection of craft beers on tap including those from their own on-site brewery.

The Horseshoe Inn is a family run establishment set in the peace and tranquility of Levisham village within the North York Moors National Park, about 2 miles from the A169 Whitby to Pickering road. An idyllic destination for a relaxing country break or meal. Fantastic food and great atmosphere.

A proper country pub with excellent food and great beer approximately 7 miles from Pickering towards Helmsley. Open seven evenings and Sunday lunchtime. Dogs allowed in the bar.

What Our Guests Say

“The cottage was of such a high standard real home from home feel. The cleanliness was spot on. We have visited Eastgate cottages for 16 yrs now and very often see the same people returning. Over that time we have stayed in most of the cottages at Eastgate and never had any cause to complain about anything.”

Kitchens and bathrooms are modern and have every amenity.I would recommend very highly, and would gladly stay again in the future.Helen and her staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
